The weight has lifted...

Aaaaaahhhhhhh...that was a sigh of relief. On Friday Nathaniel returned from a 3 week run out on the road. We had him all to ourselves until Sunday evening. From last week and until our vacatoin in the middle of May he will be working out of Charlotte. Apparently he's teaching a refresher course for the Schneider drivers coming through the Charlotte operation center. I think they're letting him hone his skills before throwing him the fresh meat. When I say fresh meat I mean the new recruits for Schneider, the one's who've most likely never set foot in a big truck. Since he started in his new position his attitude has changed so much for the better. He's happier, healthier, and more fun to be around quite honestly. I'm really loving the changes I've seen so far in him. It's obvious that a huge weight has been lifted from his shoulders. From what I understand he'll be back in the truck this summer and then doing the same thing he is now come this Fall. After that he'll be training full time...I think. I'm still learning all the company lingo. At any rate, things are good and I have my husband back...and I mean that literally and figuratively!

Nathaniel took the car to Charlotte...that was the easiest way to do things, so Geof and I are home bound. I'm not complaining, really. Ever since Geof and I were in a car accident about 3 years ago, I'm way too paranoid when driving to enjoy it. About the accident, nutshell version...I was at a traffic light waiting to turn left...old lady coming from my left had stroke or blacked out ran red light as I was turning t-boned my car and totalled it...that's why I drive what I drive now...

...this is not my actual car, but one like it. Mine is painted redwith the St Louis initials in white on both front side doors and trunk And then there is this on the hood...

Yeah, we roll deep like that! Ha! This is one of those times where I really wish I had a digital camera. It sounds like a total piece of shit, but it actually looks kinda nice considering. We're taking the damn thing up to St Louis in May because on the 18th we're going to a game!!!! After that, I'm really hoping to we'll park the car...for good! I doubt it though. Wow!! I really got side tracked didn't I? My point was to say that Nathaniel took the car to Charlotte this week but I can deal because he'll be home every weekend!! I'm so freaking excited about that I could piss myself...and it's not because of the celebratory beer I'm drinking!!

Thanks for sticking with me this far...I'll have a drink in your honor! Take care and I hope you have a great a week as I've had!
